Winemaker's Notes:

A pale straw with green tinges, the Yalumba Y Series Riesling 2010 is a light to medium bodied style of wine. Aromas of fresh apple blossom and grapefruit are complemented by subtle hints of cinnamon, paw paw and lavender. The fine palate shows flavors of lemons, lime peel and grapefruit. The light body of the wine is enhanced by a juicy acidity and fruit-tingle-like persistence. A wine to enjoy with simple flavors, such as grilled whiting accompanied by a squeeze of lemon. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
